I’ve had this notion that blogging is all about the sharing of ideas. I started my own personal blog 5 years ago and went head long into it. The goal: traffic of course, but a specific measurement was to have some kind of engagement with comments. When I posted something, I wanted to hear from the people that it was the stupidest idea ever, that I had a flaw in my logic, or that I was on the right track.
This did happen and I was happy.
I became ecstatic when I read the occasional, “this changed my ministry” comments.
But I became aware that this is not why most people blog.
